 From perusing the bug reports, I have come up with a way to get 
Libreoffice to open...   Use any or all of these methods...   and when 
one of them works, it may not work the next time but I have been able to 
get it to run using these methods:

3 ways to start   libreoffice

1. Double click on an LO file
2. Click on the icon
3. Use alt-F2 and enter: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/oosplash -calc
